National Hispanic Heritage Month is from September 15 to October 15 – National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this period, the United States recognizes the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. Northpointe Intermediate celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month and encourages our Wildcats to embrace the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans in the United States.
ABC of Mental Health - They include ideas for promoting the mental health of children and adolescents, information about how children change as they get older, descriptions of behaviors that might indicate a problem, and practical suggestions for steps to take.
Car Rider Line Reminders
Thank you all for your patience and flexibility as we have worked through car rider line logistics! Please remember that when you exit the car rider line, you can not turn left. You must turn right onto Northpointe Blvd. If you turn left, it becomes a safety hazard and can also impede the flow of traffic exiting and entering the car rider line. We appreciate your help with this!
Update: Bus Transportation Information
All students are able to utilize TISD Transportation through September 7th regardless of bus registration status. After September 7th, students must be registered for transportation. Registration is required for each student needing bus service to and/or from school. Please fill out a separate registration for each TISD student needing transportation in your household.
All information regarding bus transportation, including bus service registration, bus routes, bus rider rules, and Smart Tag information, can be found on the TISD Transportation website.
All transportation changes during the school year are needed in writing by 2:00 pm. You can fax them to 281-357-3026. We do not accept transportation changes over the phone or through email.
Reminder: Student Dress Code
- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.
- Student hair must be that of natural color. Students that need to address this particular portion can meet with their Assistant Principal to discuss a solution and timeline.
All dress code policies can be found in the TISD Student Handbook linked HERE.
Return to School Announcement
As we approach the 2021-2022 school year, Tomball ISD continues to monitor local and state health guidance and with that, the district has made a few modifications to its Return to School Parent and Student Handbook that was originally sent out last week.
Modifications made can be found in these sections of the handbook:
- Isolation and Readmission Criteria for a Positive Lab-Confirmed COVID-19 Student
- Isolation and Readmission Criteria for a Symptomatic Student
- COVID Dashboard & Notifications
- Rapid COVID testing
As always, every decision being made considers the health and safety of our students and staff as a top priority. We encourage you to read through this handbook once again as it may answer any questions or address any concerns you have as we move forward with this school year.
We greatly appreciate your patience and your understanding of these guidelines and look forward to welcoming our students back to school on August 17.
Tardies will begin after Labor Day so we can continue to work through morning drop-off and ensure all students are in the building in time.
